Protocole pour l'evaluation et la certification de la fin de defecation a l'air libre (Mali)

De plus, seulement 14% de la population rurale ont accès à un assainissement amélioré et 53% de cette même population rurale ont accès à une source d’eau améliorée (JMP 2013).

Tracking the construction of latrines in Zambia

Monitoring is always an important part of the development process, especially in CLTS. What are the factors and milestones we discuss when it comes to improving Water, Sanitation and Hygiene? We discuss Open Defecation Free status (ODF). We discuss uptake of handwashing with soap. We also discuss the construction of latrines.

But how can we monitor and evaluate these indicators in a regular, timely, and accurate way?

शौचालयों का आंशिक या संपूर्ण अनुपयोग जहाँ परिवार के कुछ या सभी सदस्य खुले में शौच कर रहे हों एक बढ़ती हुई चिंता का विषय है। हालांकि सभी परिवारों के पास शायद शौचालय हों लेकिन समुदाय संपूर्ण रूप से तब तक खुले में शौच से मुक्त नहीं हो सकते हैं जब तक सभी शौचालयों का उपयोग करना आरंभ ना करें। यह केवल रखरखाव या पहुँच का मुद्दा नहीं है बल्कि यह सामाजिक मानदंड, मानसिकताओं और सांस्कृतिक वरीयताओं का मुद्दा भी है। यह समस्या बड़े पैमाने पर फैली हुई है लेकिन इसे भारत में सबसे सुस्पष्ट रूप से देखा जा सकता है। फ्रंटीयर्स ऑफ सी.एल.टी.एस के इस प्रकाशन में यह पूछा गया है कि यह समस्या कितनी गंभीर है, यह क्यों उत
